Storyline

The pilot for the popular TV series is set during 24 frantic hours in the lives of a group of doctors, nurses, and staff members of a busy emergency room at a Chicago hospital. They deal with the seemingly endless casualties that stumble into their place of employment. The central characters are the chief resident and family man Dr. Mark Greene, who is considering a job in private practice due to pressure from his demanding law student wife Jennifer; outgoing Dr. Doug Ross, who deals with cases in his own personal way; straight-arrow Dr. Susan Lewis, trying to get by another long 36-hour shift; inexperienced third-year med student John Carter; cocky surgical resident Dr. Peter Benton; and troubled chief nurse Carol Hathaway.

Trivia

The pilot wasn't shot in a set, but in an abandoned hospital (the Linda Vista Community Hospital in East Los Angeles). When the set was built, it was modeled after the real hospital, but it's not a exact replica: looking carefully it's possible to see several discrepancies. For example, the entire corridor that goes around the curtain area 3 is absent in the pilot. See more »

Show is OK

I have been watching this show for quite some time now. I think it is pretty good and so real. The characters and the actors who play them, play them well. But, they keep changing people. No one ever stays on long enough. Dr. Ross, Carol, and Dr. Benton all the good ones gone. I think it is time to close up shop on this show. It needs to retire while it is on top. Everybody has got to go sometimes.
